Did you know that bad tires cause about 11,000 crashes per year? Worse, the National Transportation Safety Administration says that about 200 of those wrecks are fatal. You and your family matter to Integrity Automotive in Williamstown, New Jersey. Therefore, we urge you never to underestimate the importance of your tires. Tires are very important vehicle components because they provide the traction that holds your automobile to the road, preventing a dangerous skid. If you’re unsure of your safety, our experienced team of ASE certified technicians are happy to help you with all your tire repair needs.
In case you’re wondering how to spot a lousy tire before it goes flat or blows out, we can assist you with that, too. First, vigilance is key. Tire air pressure should be monitored regularly. It’s bad to operate with either too little or too much psi. Also, keeping an eye on your tires will ensure that you have a sufficient amount of treat. The least that’s safe for operation is 2/32″. (This is the absolute minimum. You may actually need tires before reaching this point to maintain adequate traction.) Second, obtaining routine services is important. Be sure to have your tires rotated and balanced as recommended to promote even wear. Third, be aware of these telling signs. Other than the tread wear that should always be monitored, the greatest indicator of a bad tire is that it wobbles, especially when you’re traveling at a low rate of speed. You may also notice a new, steady noise such as a hum. Finally, you could start to feel that you’re slipping when conditions aren’t perfect (wet pavement, curves, etc.). That’s an indicator of poor traction. All of these signals can result from tire trouble, but they can also point to other issues. Therefore, let us sort out the underlying cause(s) for you.
Whatever your tire trouble, Integrity Automotive can help. We can help you with proper tire care as well as repair tire injuries if it’s safe to do so. When it’s time for a new set, see us for support in selecting the right tires for your vehicle and driving style.
